"SEXT" in Scrabble/WWF does not mean what you think it does.

Yes there must be a commission to deal w/ "french-ized" foreign words.
I can tell you that french people don't care about it and use english words everyday.
I didn't know textopornographie, neither clavardage, and never heard anyone use those words.
I didn't think I'd learn french words on this site :-)
20 years ago people invented the word "mél" - for "message électronique" - as replacement to e-mail. Eventually the region where those french-ized words are most used is in ... Quebec, Canada. Those guys are pretty proud of their unique french speaking in northern America.

French is actually moribund like German, Italian and other European languages. Except for some African countries where a pseudo French is spoken, France and Quebec, with their pure French, will have their populations reduced by 2050. They'd better create a commission to preserve their language in long term digital media to avoid total oblivion instead of worrying for sexting.
